DIGIT Game Studios Ireland’s largest game developer has gone where no Irish game developer has gone before. They have created and developed Star Trek™ Fleet Command in partnership with Scopely an entertainment company, and mobile games publisher, who also published the game. Star Trek™ Fleet Command is a multiplayer real-time strategy and role-play mobile game that brings an entire galaxy of characters and ships to life for the ultimate Star Trek gaming experience.
Based on the 2009, 2013 and 2016 cinematic Star Trek universe, Star Trek™ Fleet Command is the first free-roaming multiplayer Star Trek experience to combine role-playing game style progression and real-time battles with enemy ships on mobile devices. Players have the opportunity to build dream teams made up of their favorite characters including Captain Kirk, Spock, and Uhura as well as from different factions such as the Federation, Klingons, and Romulans as they determine their place in the cosmos. Star Trek™ Fleet Command also boasts augmented reality (AR) features, bringing a football field-sized USS Enterprise into the real world for the first time. Players can use their mobile camera to hover their ship over their home or local park, allowing them to capture screenshots to share with friends.
“We are excited to add a strategy game to our multi-genre games portfolio,” said Javier Ferreira, President, and Chief Operating Officer at Scopely. “Star Trek™ Fleet Command further expands the diverse set of experiences our teams are building for gamers worldwide with another globally beloved universe where we can deploy our core strengths of creative gameplay and deep, highly personal user experiences.”
Steve Huff, General Manager of Product at Scopely added, “Star Trek has cultivated one of the most devoted and passionate fan bases in entertainment and we sought to stay true to the franchise when creating Star Trek™ Fleet Command—offering players one of the most aesthetically, narratively and mechanically immersive Star Trek experiences to date. Our teams have been working with tremendous passion to deliver the ultimate gaming experience for fans around the globe.”
Star Trek™ Fleet Command offers players the ability to customize their gameplay experience through various narrative paths across hundreds of available missions. How players interact with other deep-space denizens and utilize the different factions’ unique officers, ships and technologies will further tailor each user experience, making the amount of personalization offered in Star Trek™ Fleet Command about as limitless as the universe.
